I wrote The Monster Alphabet for my son. I'm printing it as a board book, so I can teach him that B is for Basilisk.

1,500% Goal Met!

A very quick update - we just hit our Bonus Backer Bonus Goal of $7,500. Everybody that orders a book will now also be getting an 11x17 poster. That's along with the bookmark and postcard bonuses from earlier goals.

We'll be adding a new Bonus Backer Bonus Goal later today. And again, thank you all so much!

1,000% Goal Met!

At 12:18 a.m. EST last night, we crossed the 1,000% funding mark. At 12:19, I started to think about what else we could add as Bonus Backer Bonuses.

Right now, every book order will include a Hello With Cheese postcard and Monster Alphabet bookmark added on to the normal backer rewards.

If we reach $7,500, we'll add an 11x17 Monster Alphabet poster to every book order. We currently have less than $2,000 to go on that goal.

I do have two ideas of what to add to the Bonus Backer Bonuses, but I need to talk to the printers to check on some costs. If you guys have suggestions, please add them to the comments. I'd love to hear them.

500%, Boing Boing and free postcards

Two things happened this morning. First, we got linked by Boing Boing, which has been making do a dance party in my house with my son Franklin. He's also extremely excited about being on Boing Boing.

Second, we just cleared the $2,500 mark for funding, which means that every book order (any backer package of $12 or more) will have a free Hello With Cheese postcard added to its shipment.

Our next goal is $5,000. When we hit that, O and I will make a special Monster Alphabet bookmark to add to each book order.

So be sure to tell your friends, tweet about us, and hit that Facebook like button. And thank you all so much for your support!

100% and Beyond!

So it took less than 24 hours for us to reach 100% backed. We were pretty sure we were going to get there, just not that quickly. I mean, wow.

Anyhow, we did plan out a slew of bonus backer bonuses.

If we reach $2,500, every book shipment will include a free Hello With Cheese Postcard.

If we reach $5,000, every book shipment will include a free custom Monster Alphabet bookmark.

If we reach $7,500, every book shipment will include a free 11x17 Monster Alphabet poster.
